We are pleased to present our 1997 introduction, a 1989 cross of H. 'Swoosh' x H. 'Tardiflora'. H. 'Soft Shoulders' makes a symmetrical mound 10" tall x 24" wide. The long diamond shaped dark green glossy leaves are surrounded by a nice wide creamy white edge. In late summer, the clumps are topped with attractive 24" scapes of medium lavender flowers.
The long, glossy, dark green leaves are neatly edged in creamy white. Lavender flowers.
